More help coming援助接踵而至

More assets are streaming in to aid in the search, including high-tech gadgets.

The HMS Tireless, a British nuclear submarine with sonar capabilities, will take part. It will be joined by an Australian navy ship equipped with a pinger locator designed to listen for locator beacons attached to the plane's flight data recorder, plus a submersible that can search the ocean floor for wreckage.

更多的资源被派来援助搜救,包括高科技工具。不倦号,一艘具有声呐功能的英国核潜艇将参加此次搜索。它将与一艘装有声波定位器的澳大利亚海船一起行动,这艘海船能够听到飞机的黑匣子发出的定位信号,另外,一辆潜水艇也被用来搜索海底的残骸。

But the equipment won't be of use until wreckage from the plane is found and the search zone narrowed. That's because neither the pinger locator nor the submersible -- both of which are from the U.S. Navy -- can quickly scan the enormous area being searched.

但是这个设备在残骸找到和搜索区域缩小之前并没有用。因为来自美国的声波定位器和潜水艇都无法快速扫描大块的搜寻区域。

Under the best of sea conditions, the pingers can be heard 2 nautical miles away. That distance shrinks in the presence of high seas, background noise, wreckage or silt.

在最好的海洋情况下,声波定位器只能探测到2海里之外的声波。这个距离在深海、背景噪音、残骸和泥沙的影响下又缩小了。

It will take the Austalian navy ship, the Ocean Shield, at least another day to reach the search zone, leaving little time to locate the flight data recorders before the batteries die on its locator beacon.

被称为“海洋盾牌”的澳大利亚海军舰船将花费至少一天才能抵达搜索海域,在它的声波定位电池用光之前,只有一点时间能够定位飞机的黑匣子了。

Time is running out: The batteries are designed to last 30 days -- until April 7.

There's no guarantee the plane will be found soon -- or ever.

时间正在流逝:黑匣子的电池只能维持30天,即到4月7日。飞机不久后能否找到无法保证,或者永远无法找到。

Though the Boeing jetliner was among the world's most sophisticated planes, much about Flight 370 remains unknown--including its altitude, precise speed and, especially, its final resting place.

尽管波音喷气飞机是世界上最复杂精致的飞机之一,但MH370仍存在许多谜团,包括它的飞行高度,精确的速度,当然,尤其是它的安息之所。
